GPS connection problems help


Junior Member
I am just getting into fpv and I have run into a snag. I have major issues with My GPS, I am running Cyclopes OSD 1.5 and a 400mw 1.2 GHZ video system with a low pass filter and the only way I can get any GPS signal is by removing the OSD and GPS from the plane and moving the GPS as far from the plane as its cable will allow. Even then its pretty slow to connect. I am assuming that my problem is either noise from the power system or the video transmitter. I have tried moving the GPS and transmitter further away from one another by about 6 more inches then they were positioned before and I have also installed chokes on all of the power wires. To no avail. Is there a way to fix this? Do I need to move my transmitter even further away? Its driving me mad and my OSD is mostly useless without it. Oh and this is all mounted on a skysurfer.

I really appreciate any help or information anyone can share with me.
